Burnham Market was a sea of yellow this bank holiday as hundreds of rubber ducks battled their way down the village stream.
The duck race was fought and won on the Goose Bec which runs straight through the north Norfolk village.
And hundreds of people flocked to see the 250 ducks and find out which would be north Norfolk's best.
Brothers Archie, 7, and Wilf, 6, Barker from South Creake won the top prize when their fluorescent entry floated its way to the finish line first.
The day's event was organised by the Burnham Market Traders Association's events committee as a fundraiser for the village's Christmas lights which cost around £10,000 each year.
